Result: Manchester United 2 – 0 Everton
Location: Old Trafford – Manchester United
|Manchester United – 2||Everton – 0|
|Ryan Giggs 13’|
|Robin van Persie 45’+1’|
Robin van Persie should have opened up the scoring after a beautiful through ball saw him round Tim Howard, but his shot on the wide open net, went off the post. Instead, Ryan Giggs was able to score his annual goal meaning he has scored in all 20 seasons of the Premier League. Van Persie made up for his ealier miss just on half time when Rafael threaded a brilliant pass to put RvP one on one with Howard again. For the second time he got past the American goal keeper and this time dispatched the goal with relative ease to give United a 2-0 lead at the half.
The second half saw Manchester United continue to frustrate Everton with a solid defensive unit. United showed their ability to play as a team and defend as an entire squad. For me, Wayne Rooney was the man of the match. His work rate through the entirety of the pitch was first rate and he did just about everything except score a goal. With United’s win they now go 12 points clear at the top of the Premier League and look all but assured of winning the title. Everton remain in 6th place 2 points behind Arsenal.
